    Inspired by the other thread by oreilly2311, here 's another search key to find ooold sites that can use your m4d skillz to make their owners proud!

    Code:
    <your target niche> intext:"Copyright © 2008" intext:" - 2009" site:com -filetype:pdf
    
    Example: target: hotels

    What this does, is help you identify old sites in the niche you are interested. Old sites have a high probability of being damn ugly.

    Enjoy! ;)

    It has a - in front of it. It tells Google NOT to show you pdf files (documents have copyright too - but you are not looking for documents! ;))

    That actually works really well. Popped out more potentials than the other method. Thanks.
